Ah, what have we here? The Peugeot 2008, which made its local public debut at KLIMS13 last month, is supposed to officially go on sale here in January, but it seems that details and pricing are already ready for the urban crossover.
A visit to the Peugeot Malaysia website reveals all – the 2008 will be priced at RM119,888 on-the-road with insurance in its solitary 1.6 VTi form, and the brochure shows what kit it’ll have. The final pricing doesn’t veer far from that suggested by an ad on oto.my.
As mentioned previously, the equipment list includes Smart Park Assist, a panoramic roof with mood lighting and an electric sunblind, a seven-inch colour touchscreen with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, auto dual-zone air-conditioning, a Smart One-Touch Foldable rear seat and a six-speaker Arkamys 3D sound system.
The 2008 also features auto headlights and auto wipers, a head-up instrument panel with LCD colour display, cornering assist fog lamps, an aviation-style handbrake lever and semi-bucket Oxford leather/fabric combination seats, while safety equipment includes six airbags, ESP with ASR, Isofix anchorage points as well as DSC.
The B-segment crossover sits on 16-inch two-tone alloys wrapped with 195/60 rubbers. Its normally-aspirated 1.6 litre VTi mill offers 122 PS at 6,000 rpm and 160 Nm at 4,250 rpm, and is paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Performance specs include a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 11.2 seconds and a 190 km/h top speed.
Some other relevant numbers – the boot offers 360 litres of space, expanding to 1,194 with the rear seats folded flat. Four exterior colours are available for the 2008 in Malaysia – Digital White, Artense Grey, Dakota Brown and Virtual Blue.
